Top Cow Comics, the team behind Witchblade and The Darkness, will publish a five-issue series based on Digital Extremes’ Wargrame computer game.
Matt Hawkins, Top Cow’s President, told press;
I was immediately attracted to Warframe because of its storyline,”
“For a writer, it’s a very fertile place to create something fresh, from the mysterious Tenno origins to the faction battles to the Grineer Queens and more. It’s a fantastic universe where I have lost many late night hours playing the game.”
The same press release hints at clues for Wargame fans, noting;
Seasoned Tenno may even find hints to future game updates in the series not yet revealed in the Warframe universe.
The plot will centre on a lone Warframe, Excalibur, who fights to protect a blind girl from a village on Earth.
Going to TennoCon in London, Ontario? There should be an exclusive Con edition of issue #1 for you – for free – at the Convention Centre on the 8th.
Sheldon Carter, studio head at Digital Extremes, said;
Matt and his team at Top Cow understand how to handle original story material with a sense of purpose, subtlety and urgency,”
“Their full embrace and understanding of the Warframe universe won us over and we couldn’t be prouder of this first issue.”
